of the talking points were coming down, you were mitt romney's running mate, trying to unseat president obama. do you believe that the white house purposely misled the american people on benghazi to try to beat you and mitt romney and win the election? >> i don't know the answer to that question, so i'm not even going to speculate, but that's what good oversight does. that is what this investigation is all about, which is why did they continue to perpetuate this story, which they knew was not true, and what was the reason for doing so? so rather make a conclusion before an investigation has been completed, we just need to investigate this for the sake of good government. that's what the legislative branch does, what the separation of powers is all about. accountability of the executive branch by the legislative branch. so i don't want to speculate as to why and what they did until we have all of the information. i think what we know right now is that they were misleading. >> chris: we have less than two minutes left, congressman. when you look at all these scandals -- irs, the subpoena of the ap
. >> this is "the chris matthews show." >> ask not what your country can do for you. >> tear down this wall. >> i can hear you. >> the time for change has come! chris: the taxman cometh. the fact that president obama doesn't know these i.r.s. people does him no good. the u.s. government serves the people and he is the one in charge. when the cincinnati office of the i.r.s. goes rogue, it's his job to show who is boss. why didn't he jump on it. taking charge. this president and his democrat alies need to show they own the i.r.s. story. and finally, told you so. the writers said again and again
about obama care, and i guess if i spoke for obama care, i guess i wouldn't have been audited. texas is creating all the jobs and the tax is very low down here. look. this flat tax is right. you've got totake this irs out of the question. what they have done the last few years is absolutely criminal. it's not on some lower level. it is targeted. what they did with karl rove, with all the conservatives in the tea party. this was targeted and a political weapon. you need to do away i with it. >> toby, that's to the point. this is not just about taxes. this was targeting a specific political group, and we've seen it, you know, for the last decade of different types. >> i also found it interesting that the president made the speech at ohio state a couple weeks ago saying how, you know, there's going to be people who tell you that, you know, tyranny is right around the corner. don't believe those people because they're making it up. they weren't making it up. it's probably deeper. if this was the only thing, i'd be very surprised, brenda. right. the flat tax takes that power away, number
are right it doesn't change the fact that from the start the obama administration gave out wrong information to the public about what happened. this is why we care. it comes down to trust. was that a mistake or was it intentional? there are other rooebs why americans care about the government ventilating the truth on benghazi. pursuit of justice for the four victims the truth is in did our government try to help them or not? clearly this is not a protest gone wrong. were there signs warning signs we need to protect those better. on that very night it is calls for help were they ignored. justice for the victims. spotlight security that trusted officials are giving to the super stars of democracy. do they have what they need to stay safe or in this case stay alive? security for our carriers of justice. another part of the story that makes us care. finally government accountability. we want to trust the people we elect. were they wrong? we need to know if they were? did they mess up? was it a cover up? we will stay on the story. let's turn now to another scandal that is brewing in our nation's
matthews show." >> ask not what your country can you.r >> tear down this wall. >> i can hear you! come! time has change for chris: tomorrow it's still barack obama's time but republicans are focusing on hillary clinton in 2016. us, especially women my age, find it hard to think of what it would be like to have a as first lady, but as head of state, chief executive and commander-in-chief. already, hillary's time at secretary of state is getting a legions of menas and women say it's her turn. did we do it right? this show back at how called hillary's last run for president. were we smart? were we? did we see
of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days? the fact that this keeps on getting churned out, frankly, has a lot to do with political motivati motivations. >> president obama also admitted that the embassy was not adequately protected before adding the nation's lawmakers should be focused on protecting our ambassadors abroad. >>> let's bring in politico playbooks executive editor jim here. thanks for joining us. which of the three issues do you think is the biggest problem for the obama administration? >> well, there's no doubt that the irs scandal is an authentic scandal. in all likelihood, people are going to lose their jobs over it. the other two we don't know enough about. we don't know what's going on with the justice department looking at the associated press and in its reporting. on terrorists. and then, we don't know what else is going to happen with benghazi. it all depends on is there more there? when other whistle blowers come forward. when other information comes forward through the hears. is there more than we know? right now, the talking points seem to be the mo
know. >> you look at the lead editorial in "the new york times." they talk about the obama administration's chilling zeal to shut down leaks inside the white house, another jay carney press conference yesterday, more awkwardness. so much going on. before we get to all of that, we had chris christie last night in princeton with us at one of your book signings. this guy he was talking about his weight and a little uppety. the guy loses 40 pounds or so and suddenly he thinks he is -- i don't know who he thinks he is. >> he was tough on you. >> robert redford. >> you were talking politics. it was fun. it was a great crowd. >> we were talking about white house scandals. he was talking about the windsors as in prince harry. he thinks he and prince harry are best friends now. i'm a little concerned. they chumed aroumed around on t jersey shore. you were on "katie" yesterday. >> it was fun. she dedicated the whole hour to the issue. very busy day for sure. shall we get to the news? >> yeah, let's get to the news. much busier in the news. let's go through everything that happened ye
they needed to find a dangerous leak. >> i would like to try to pin down who authorized the subpoenas for the a.p. >> shepard: now president obama catching some criticism and questions about his leadership. tonight, you will hear from both sides. and, it's like the 90's all over again as o.j. simpson takes the stand to try to talk his way out of his prison sentence. >> did you ever hear any talk about weapons? >> no. >> did you ever see any weapons? >> no. >> shepard: tonight, o.j.'s play for freedom. the bass pro shops go outdoors event and sale starts this weekend. with free seminars and big savings on great camping, boating and hiking gear, like this tournament pro combo for under $40. and a coleman 3 room dome tent for under $100. >> shepard: the attorney general eric holder got a talking to from members of both parties today about the justice department's decision to go after phone records from the associated press. attorney general holder defended the move. but he said again he had nothing to do with it it he says he recused himself from the investigation of a national security
to be not quite right, even if it is well-intended. because then trust goes down. and that is the risk for a politician. >> but again, falls back to benghazi, as well. president obama, for two weeks would not say this was an act of terrorism. he said it was a terror act. >> he said that once, and then he went around saying at the u.n. that it was a spontaneous demonstration because of a youtube -- and secretary of state clinton went to the families of the people who were killed and said we're going to find the man who did that video youtube or whatever you call it. and they promoted that inaccurate, narrative for days and days and days. and it was wrong, and everyone knew it was wrong. and the people on the ground knew it was wrong. and they knew they were well armed and they knew there was no demonstration. and i think the hearings on that are going to be terribly damaging. >> in terms of that and the irs and the ap situation, the real problem for barack obama seems to me as the president is that he promised to be different. he promised to be transparent. none of this looks very trans
, they release 100 pages of e-mail to try to put this down. why this happened, it is trademark classic obama. he pushes things away. he's a bit detached me says let's not rush to judgment unless and until they reach a conclusion, this is beginning to hurt them and him personally. and then they act quickly. >> duke that on benghazi they will act any differently than they have so far given they have been swift about the irs scandal at this point? >> you mentioned at the top, that admiral mullen, ambassador pickering want to go back and defend themselves and defend the finding of their investigation which essentially says the administration got some things wrong but there was no cover-up, there was no plot to mislead the american people. that's part of the administration's step. you also saw it was a question on another subject. but you saw the animosity between eric holdered and issa on the government overnight and reform committee. that what is driving this. legitimate questions. four americans died. there are some legitimate questions about what happened in benghazi, why security warnings were i
obama stepped up his efforts today to calm a series of political storms. and word came that a second senior i.r.s. official is stepping down after admissions that conservatives came in for special scrutiny. the president addressed that and other issues at a rain-spattered appearance outside the white house. the occasion was a rose garden meeting with reporters, and the prime minister of turkey was the guest of honor, but most of the questions had to do with domestic matters. first and foremost, the i.r.s.'s targeting of conservative groups. >> it doesn't matter whether you're a democrat or a republican, you should be equally outraged at even the prospect that the i.r.s. m not bectth the kind of complete neutrality that we expect. and i think we're going to be able to fix it. we're going to be able to get there and get it done. we've already begun that process and we're going to keep on going until it's finished. >> woodruff: not long afterward came word that daniel werfel-- a white house budget official-- is being named acting commissioner of the i.r.s. the president had announced th
is that the obama administration in some way tried to change the talking points or water them down my question is, and i'm being honest about this, what administration, anna, doesn't try to control the message no matter what it is? >> i think every administration tries to control the message. but one thing it's controlling the message is one thing is scrubbing e-mail twelve times to the point where they are completely false and misleading. >> controlled message, these are outright lies. >> that's like saying that richard nixon was controlling the message when he erased the videos. he was also controlling the message. life it how this guy says the benghazi message was obvious. benghazi happened eight months ago and they just arrived at it. we've been talking about it ate months. it wasn't obvious at all. this is more spin control. if it is as easy as he is saying, why did carney lie over and over again to the press about it. >> there are brave souls, rare as they are, who are trying to do good work. a friend at cnn interviewed cbs's cheryl atkinson and she's been all over this benghazi issue, not
people are still alive. >> more fall out at the irs tonight. second official his now stepped down. joseph grant who oversaw the division that targeted tea party groups will retire in june. this news comes just hours after president obama named daniel to replace irs commissioner miller who resign. tea party activist descended on washington claiming vindication in the complaint about perceived government over-reach. many now plan to suit irs. >> city of san francisco is increasing security at sunday bay to breaker nraes response to the deadly boston marathon bombing. one of the biggest changes camera. this year surveillance camera at the start and finish lane. also be more officers including special op and bomb technician just in case. rules of the race this year no alcohol. no floats. no large backpack. no wheeled object and no pets. >> big changes. >> big changes indeed. >> we trade. but the warriors just couldn't get it done tonight in game 6. >> heart breaking loss. >> larry live at the oracle arena for us. >> warriors head coach jackson just spoke few minutes ago and

? >> well, i think what they probably know is that president obama's having a really, really bad week. >> that's easy to understand. >> as far as we know, digging down on the details, that's harder to tell. i think that it's easy to get people fired up about the irs 'cause everyone hates the irs, people maybe paying a little more attention to that, as you mentioned, but as far as, you know, digging down deep on benghazi and the ap subpoenas, that's really why republicans are trying to get out there and hammer this, hammer sort of the bigger point that they are making, which is that? an administration is has had a culture of coverups, that's the allegation they are making and i think they are really just trying to get the american public to focus on that so they can roll into 2014 with that as their argument. >> basically using that to help run out the clock, so to speak? >> right. >> is he tore rand paul, a lot of 2016 buzz, of course, among those at this week's tea party newser on the hill. is paul, is he the gopper who will beat this drop the loudest, if not until 2016, at least unt
's work, but i think many on the left were mistakenly caught off guard by obama's escalation of the afghan war. he campaigned on it. that was the central aspect of his foreign-policy platform when he first ran for office, escalating the afghan war while drawing down the iraq war. i think we should not have been in any way surprised, saddened, disappointed when he did exactly that. in one sense, he's broken many promises, but he kept that one promise he made. i also want to mention that when i was talking about the folks who did do very good coverage of the afghanistan war when it was first unfolding, and it is still unfolding -- amy interviewed myself and my co-author, and the radio was there among independent journalists who did the kind of coverage and have continued to do it under obama. >> anybody else who wants to make a final,? comment? i know jeremy's cahill -- he wrote, jeremy schedule pledges to be the same journalists under the obama administration that he was under bill clinton and george bush's presidency. he talks about how he got some of the most vicious hate mail from democr

the issue until we get answers. owe -- obama can deal with some of it because he is not up for any re-election anytime soon. who ordered the stand down? we need a name and find out who told that person to stay stand down when there were seven hours between the beginning of the attack and the final attack that may have killed -- the ones that may have resulted in the death of two more american service people. seven hours in between and somebody said don't go there. how do we know there wasn't more and we could have had assets there. we need to find out who that is and get him or her in front of a congressional panel or senate panel. >> how early is it too early to talk about 2016? if you are going to run when is the time when you would make that decision? >> not for her, but you have to be very careful. they ran this ad attacking clinton which was a stupid thing to do. she is a professional when it comes to dealing with conflicts like this. going back to white water and she survived it. she willonly survive, but grow. this will have zero impact. she will have the nomination and beat an

state solid. and those folks down there and a part of our country says that the irs, the obama administration, is overreaching. when you give them something that is factual like this irs situation, it does validate their concern. whether you think so or not. >> it plays into their hands. i agree with you as a practical matter, it does. but first of all, they're not half the country. they lost the half election. they're significantly below half the country which is something given the election results, we should keep in mind them like to say they're america and the rest of russ visiting. >> but they are a part of the country. >> they are a part of the country. we need to tease out, separate the glenn becks of the world who have these paranoid fantasies from what the president agrees should be a legitimate and very aggressive investigation to find out what happened. if they targeted only tea party and not super pacs on the left, doing the same thing, that's wrong. >> which we haven't seen. >> and there should be consequences. but to jump to a bunch of conclusions about the irs. e
of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff: we turn to the other story the obama administration was criticized for, the collection of journalists' phone records in the name of tracking down classified leaks. the associated press says it was notified friday that the justice department secretly subpoenaed records for more than 20 of its phone lines. the a.p.'s kathleen carroll says they listed outgoing calls from april and may of 2012. >> they haven't told us what they're looking for and nor have they explained why we got no prior notice which our lawyers tell us not only is customary but required. >> woodruff: a.p.'s president and c.e.o. gary pruitt sent a letter of protest to attorney general eric holder. in it he wrote: he said it amounts to "a serious interference with a.p.'s constitutional right to gather and report the news." pruitt demanded that d.o.j. return the records and destroy any copies, but this afternoon, attorney general holder said he had recused himself at the start of the probe. instead he said deputy attorney general james kohl authorized the su

not directly order the irs to pound conservative groups. down the road, the irs and ap stories might become nightmares for president obama, but again, that has not yet been established. >> ari melber, bill o'reilly. almost the voice of reason. >> he said bill o'reilly was the reasonable person at fox like the thin kid at fat camp. we see it here. charles krauthammer as right as you get says republicans are overplaying their hand. they compared every mini wannabe scandal to watergate, slin dra and now the low level operational questions as i discussed with you should be investigated, igs should be involved, but these are not obama level issues. when you immediately say they are, you give away the game, in the same sense that attorney general holder is the first one held in contempt by the house, but it was a year ago when they did it over fast and furious, over e-mails, about responding to congressional requests. they have nothing left to go after holder, they already did the worse they could do. >> listen to what charles krauthammer has to say about this. >> one advice i give to republicans
goes down. and that's the risk -- >> again, falls back to benghazi, as well. president obama, for two weeks, would not say this was an act of terrorism. he said it was a terror act. >> he said that once. >> but not terrorism. >> and then he went around saying at the u.n. that it was a spontaneous demonstration, because of youtube and secretary of state clinton went to the families of the people who were killed and said we're going to find the man who did that youtube video -- video youtube or whatever you call it. and they promoted that inaccurate narrative for days and days and days. and it was wrong and everyone knew it was wrong and the people on the ground knew it was wrong. and they knew they were well-armed and they knew there was no demonstration. and i think the hearings on that are going to be terribly damaging. >> in terms of that and the irs, and the a.p. situation, the real problem for barack obama seems to me, as the president, is that he promised to be different. he promised to be transparent. none of this looks very transparent, is it? the fact that we're having to pull
that the obama administration are facing right now different in nature, but does this president risk becoming weighed down with these scandals and not able to get his agenda back on the table like immigration reform, fiscal issues, education? >> well, there's three scandals potentially in the works right now, as you know, suzanne. it's bad enough when there's one like the monica scandal that plagued the clinton administration, or iran contra that plagued the second term of the reagan administration, certainly watergate that plagued richard nixon's administration in the second term and led to his forced resignation as president of the united states. so those were all individual scandals that obviously escalated and escalated and escalated. you never know where they're going to wind up. there are three underway right now. so he's got to deal with it. and yesterday he came out forcefully and tried to deal with the irs scandal. he's got these two other issues, the benghazi issue that's not going away. to a lesser degree the monitoring the phone records of the associated press reporters and editor
